Set of Six Woven Cane #611 Chairs
Alvar Aalto

Description:

A magnificent set of Alvar Aalto Model 611 Chairs. Aalto designed the 611 chair in 1929, making it one of his first modern furniture designs. His earliest works followed the tenets of Nordic Classicism, the predominant style in Finland in the 1920s. However, in the late-1920s & early-30s, Aalto and his wife Aino Marsio, also an architect, made a number of journeys to Europe where they became familiar with the latest developments in Modernism, the International Style.
The six chairs available at Sigmar were produced in the late-1950s / early-60s and the distinctive hand-woven cane backs they feature make them especially rare. Contrasting the rich honey-coloured natural wicker is the ultramarine vinyl seats. The vibrant blue upholstery is original to the chairs, although still in excellent condition. Some of the solid birch frames have historic repairs but each chair is structurally sound and aesthetically stunning.
